9780060197261: Depraved Indifference

Depraved Indifference completes Gary Indiana's trilogy exploring the gap between violent crimes and they way they get contorted by the scandal-starved mass media. Evangeline Slote and her husband, Warren, a self-made real estate mogul at the end of a long alcoholic decline, shift from Las Vegas to Hawaii, destroying their homes for the insurance, dabbling in myriad forms of financial fraud and constantly altering their identities to evade the law. When Warren dies, Evangeline is desperate to create yet another new life, while keeping his death secret, particularly from her stepchildren and the beneficiaries of his will. Surrounded by a bunch of burnouts, hapless suckers and fellow grifters, Evangeline cooks up the ultimate con. And she will stop at nothing, even murder...
Depraved Indifference is a dissection of the mind of a charismatic sociopath and a satire of the society that appeases and abets her.
